At Spectrum Brands, Rouvé out, Maura in

David Maura has been named CEO at Spectrum Brands effective immediately, replacing Andreas Rouvé who had been with the Middleton company since 2002 and served as CEO since 2015.

According to HomeWorld Business, Reuters, and others, Rouvé stepped down from his role as CEO and director about a week ago after second quarter estimates came in well short of projections, although no direct reason was stated.
